me now mark murray. so mark, interesting numbers out there. there was another poll indicating i believe it's about 22% of republicans believe that there needs to be some kind of gun control legislation. so we know there's a divide here but what we don't know is the plan from the white house specifically. will they put the president out on the road? what is the next full throttle step here? >> well, the plan is to have the president on the road. first vice president biden hitting the road tomorrow, going to richmond, virginia, with new governor caine and making a political campaign on this. the question is, how much of one and will be able to see that in the days ahead and particularly after the state of the union address this coming up february 12th. but there is the campaign. but tamron, when you look at the different pieces of legislation that the obama white house wants, what democrats want, some of the things like the assault weapons ban that senator dianne feinstein unveiled today, advocates believe it's hardest thing to get passed with the senate and the senate democrats.
political editor mark murray. mark, explain the coverage of this so far. i think "the l.a. times" called an evolution, not a revolution and what some people anticipated what might come. >> well, in the filibuster reform taken off as a measure of democrats, from liberaling who were very frustrated by the change of pace in the u.s. senate. throughout its history, the united states senate has been the world's greatest deliberative body and sometimes they deliberate a little bit too long but the white house actually said that they supported the modest measures and it depends on where you are on the united states senate. sometimes when people want quick action now, those people were disappointed but if you believe in evolutional or gradual change as president obama sometimes does, you would end up taking that half or a third of a loaf. >> okay. so progressives, though, certainly have not had a good time hearing about this and specifically coming out and being very stern in reaction to harry reid. take a listen to rachel maddow. >> wow, harry reid, yeah. this is the day everybody was looking f
analyst mark murray. good morning, mark. >> good morning, alex. >> explain how the plan would work. >> most electoral votes across the country are apportioned by a win evener take all basis. for example, if a candidate wins the election in virginia, they get all the electoral votes. this was being considered in states like virginia, michigan, pennsylvania, the electoral votes would be apportioned by congressional district. and just to show you how much things would end up changing, due to all the gerrymandering with the concentration of a lot of democratic votes in urban areas to a handful of congressional districts, mitt romney would have had more electoral votes in the state of virginia, nine to barack obama's four, even though barack obama won the state by four percentage points. and 150,000 overall votes. >> that's the state of virginia and overall, you look at the numbers, romney would have gotten 273, obama, 262, if it had gone that way nationwide. that's an extraordinary change. but the question, this constitutional? >> it is. states are allowed to decide how their electoral
. >>> and top seeded novak djokovic has joust won his third straight australian open by beating andy murray. he is the first player to win three australian opens in a row since back in the 1960s and meanwhile, victoria azarenka won her second australian open on saturday and while you might think her name would give the engraver trouble, it turns out it was her country, azarenka is from belarus. the trophy says her name and initials b-e-l for belgium. blr, as everybody knows is short for belarus. >> who doesn't know that? >> ginger, you're up. >> yeah, everybody knows that. blr, all the time. this is worth noting again. we mentioned at the beginning of the broadcast, it's already starting to report freezing rain in parts of iowa, des moines included, as it moves east southern wisconsin, chicago included there, parts of the state line right along michigan, indiana, ohio and by monday morning, pittsburgh even in that quarter inch or more. now i told you about the warm-up, new york up to 60 by wednesday so lots of warm and moist air up in front, another arctic blast will come in by late week, with
? >> it was on interstate 69. it was the murray state in kentucky, the women's athletics. they were on their way, in a minivan, to an event, but they hit a patch of ice, and the minivan rolled over. they said there were about nine injuries. two were transported to the hospital. the injuries are believed to be nonlife threatening. and it looks like in spite of how disastrous this actually looks, very few injuries, they were transported, but this was due to hitting some ice on some of the interstates there. well, the storm system is expected to move fairly rapidly towards east, but right now, the critical zone is going to be in this tristate area, tennessee into north carolina, and georgia. this is what we're looking at, the worsening of the icing conditions now. i want to show you what happened in the past 12 to 24 hours. this coming out of utah, around provo. this from our i-reporter, lane russell. look at the video. and he says that in provo, at byu university, that they had ice, they had snow, but on one of the ramps there he said there was a layer of ice. they were trying to get across this,
countries. i think charles murray's book last year lays it out. >> we all talk about this and we are alarmed about it. see, thewe don't social dislocation costs of this. when we started the weekly standard in 1995, a very good piece but it will make you laugh if you go back and look at>> bu. the argument was that we had created a generation of 17-year- old whose fathers had been in prison, they had never seen a strong family. they were on their way to creating a crime wave the likes of which we had never seen. that is one of the great humbling moments of my life as an editor. it was a wonderful piece that was perfectly argued and it made sense at the time that we published it. it was so wildly wrong that 18 years later, we have lived through a decline in crime. not one person was killed last week in new york city. that has not happened. someone mispronounced my name that i was taught him. part of the difficulty is that when we talk about this and we look at this horrible trend upon us, it has been upon us for 40 years and most social indices that we can look at suggest that the country is st
country. i think charles murray's book last year was very powerful way of laying out how it is spent this is a very peculiar problem that we face because we all talk about this. i think we're all of him had even if you're not a hardline social conservative. you safe information. and yet we don't see, what we haven't seen, charles alluded to this lastly, are the social dislocation talks of this. that is to say, when we started "the weekly standard" in 1995, the worst, very good piece, but would make you laugh if you would like to look at it was by a criminologist and sociologist was called here come the super predators. and the argument was that we had created a generation of 17-year-olds, youth, whose fathers had been in prison, never seen a strong family, none of that. and basically they were on the way to creating a crime wave the likes of which we had never seen. that is one of the great humbling moments of my life as an editor. wonderful piece, perfectly argued and it made absolute sense at the time that we published it. and it was so wildly wrong that it's not 18 years later. yo
